Get to know the contestants of the Next Great Horror Writer Contest
What do you love about horror?
I love how it seems to never run out of scares.
What was the first horror movie/story/book/show that you fell in love with?
The first one that I remember falling in love with, was the 1999 remake of “House on Haunted Hill”. It’s a movie that I can watch over and over again, and never lose my love for.
Can you describe the sort of horror stories you write?
My horror stories tend to be more on the strange and macabre side.
Do you listen to music while you write? If so, what?
I almost always listen to music while I write. I listen to nearly everything, from classical to movie and video scores, classic rock, EDM, and nu-metal.
Do you have any hobbies besides writing?
Outside of writing, I enjoy playing video games, riding my bike, and working with my hands.
What is your favourite part about writing?
My favorite part about writing is that I don’t need to pay a therapist loads of money. It’s my positive outlet.
What is your favourite word?
Love, that is my favorite word. That word alone conjures up too many images to describe in this interview. I lovvve it.
What is your least favourite word?
My least favorite word, hmm, never thought about that one before. I don’t think I really have one. I love words! Ut-oh…there I go again with that word.
What turns you on in a book?
Compelling characters and a stimulating story turns me on more than anything in a book. Throw in some fun, new, or obscure words that flow nicely, and you got me sold.
Why should people be on team Patrick?
My roots are buried in New England. My mind is spread amongst the odd wonders of the universe, and my hands release the combination of the two. If those aren’t good enough reasons to join team Patrick, then maybe my stories can convince you otherwise.
